    Thanks for that, Yes I did mean file explorer and have tried your first option but it also changes the size of the Icons as well, which all I wish to do is increase the system font size,

    I don't understand the 2nd option ?? If you mean File Explorer go to Display in control panel ??

    I was just saying where you can change your font size and make them bold in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display.

    Thanks for that, I assumed that was for the "icons", If I were a betting man I could have lost my shirt on that. Merry Christmas,
